Just as the original “Marshall Plan” proposed by the United States helped rebuild a devastated western Europe after World War II, Governor Rick Snyder is hoping for a similar transformation in Michigan with his  own “Marshall Plan”.

Snyder’s initiative is designed to boost interest among high school students to apply for in demand career technical
education. Those high wage jobs are now largely unfilled due to a lack  of qualified applicants. Interim Saginaw Superintendent Ramont Roberts  wants local students to step forward.

Roberts who reviewed the program during the school board’s Wednesday’s briefing session added the district will work with partners including Delta College to try to steer more students to “high tech” careers. Under the Governor’s program grants of up to $500,000 would be available to assist in those efforts.
